* Shows up in ''Manga/AzumangaDaioh'' quite often. Tomo occasionally demands to be the "boke" to an utterly unsuited Osaka's tsukkomi, and Yomi (who is eminently suited) has played that part at least once. Osaka was once asked to do this with Miss Yukari, and was asked which person should take which part. She asked Yukari to be the boke, prompting Yukari to bop her. As Yomi stated, "So it begins..."

* In ''VideoGame/{{Persona 2}}: Innocent Sin'', if you have Maya and Yuki contact a demon together, they'll do one of these, with Maya as the boke. Notable example: "Did you know that when a tsunami hits it can send you and your family on a trip?" "That's not what they mean by 'it sends you packing.'"
** One example, however, is based on misinterpreting Japanese characters:
--> Maya: Oh, yeah! I was just reminded that I found this interesting dish at a ramen shop!
--> Yukino: What's so special about it?
--> Maya: It was "Tonkatsu ramen"! I've never heard of it before. I wonder if anyone would really eat soup with deep-fried pork in it.
--> Yukino: Er, Maya... I think it was "tonkotsu" ramen.
* In an extra segment for ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}: FES,'' the main character and one of his classmates, Kenji, act out an impromptu comedy routine. The response the player chooses for Kenji's setups determine whether you are a master of Japanese humor or not.

[[caption-width-right:350:Now just do that with 50 different jokes and you got a {{Manzai}} act![[note]]Most Manzai isn't translatable into English because this is what you get. In this case, 'kobushi' is both a form in Enka singing and a JapanesePopMusic group, but DontExplainTheJoke quickly kicks in...[[/note]]]]

* Happens quite often in ''Grisaia no Kajitsu''. Usually, being the serious guy he is, Yuuji plays the tsukkomi, especially when talking to Makina or Michiru, though between his habit of interpreting situations as what they might have implied if he were at work, and his tendency to be a total smartass, he often plays boke as well.

* ''VideoGame/TalesOfBerseria'' has [[CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass Magilou]] do her best to [[InvokedTrope invoke]] this with her Magilou's Menagerie skits. Unfortunately for her, she's the resident ButtMonkey and with her [[AntiHero anti-heroic]] teammates it doesn't work out. The closest to success is when [[{{Pirate}} Eizen]] of all people decides to be the boke; unfortunately, he's [[FaceOfAThug too scary]] for the audience to laugh.

* The WiiWare Sega title ''VideoGame/PoleNoDaibouken'' is an unusual example of this: the entire ''game'' is the ''boke'', what with all the weird and zany gags, and the narrator is the ''tsukkomi'' trying to be the foil to all the insanity.

** Not to mention she tended to make people ATwinkleInTheSky...And then, because it's that kind of show, she joined a secret Boke and Tsukommi ''underground political organization'' [[note]]They were partly that, but they also represent far right-wing Japanese ultra-nationalists, who complain about Japan's "peacetime boke" (in comparison to its [[ImperialJapan earlier attitude)]][[/note]].
